the connecticut law demands that public records be released. these are public records defined by the statute therefore they've got to be released and the fact that the connecticut legislature post sandy hook changed the law and kept off-limits communications between first responders in a situation like this to the extent they were commenting on a homicide. but where the legislature hasn't protected this situation, the law says they've got to be handed over. >> michael, there are seven land line calls from inside the school at the time and they are expected to be released there. a part of what's going on as this community braces for the one-year anniversary on the 14th, the new school superintendent john reed sent a letter to parents in the district as well as staff and it said, i want you to have the opportunity to thirveg about steps, if any you may take to minimize media exposure for you and your family. i have not listened but i suspect it will be an emotional trigger. i remine confident by supporting one another with love and understanding we will continue to move forward as a school sys

. the challenge for these companies, they are required by law to help the nsa do surveillance. what edward snowden exposed over the last few months is several programs that allow the nsa to access vast amounts of private information. the nsa says it is to prevent terrorism. but often that data is being collected on people who don't have any connection to terrorism. and that's the reason why you see these companies asking the government to change the law so the companies can in fact protect their customers' privacy. here's what they had to say in their letter they sent out today. the balance in many countries has tipped too far in faf of the state. and away from the rights of the individual. rights that are enshrined in our constitution. this undermines the freedoms we all cherish. it's time for change. >> and evan, talk specifically about klein because we know a lot of drops in sales have happened in china even though the economy there grew 8% in the third quarter. how does this impact the u.s. economy, as well? >> that's right. these are some of the most important companies to the u.s. economy. a
